Specific comments made about this task

Birmingham City Council - 2016-07-14
Couldn't find anything - does this council offer this service?

Birmingham City Council - 2017-01-12
I assume this council doesn't offer this service.

Bracknell Forest Council - 2014-03-18
Breakthrough supported employment - but very difficult to find if you don't know what it's called. Search only returned documents.

Brent Council - 2014-08-17
Thre is no A to Z tab, insted it says "cant see whach you want?" . A bit sarcy remark from Brent Council LOL But no straightforward tabs to clickon for disabile folks. Basiccaly Brent Council staff under Pakistani and Indian MPs from "untoucable" class, have abondoned their disable folks, they only cater for shrewd, crafty and thrifty lot just like themselves.

Copeland Borough Council - 2014-02-13
To be fair, few councils seem to perform well at this task.

Coventry City Council - 2014-02-04
Into the Internal Search, you should be able to enter in more characters to search for what you want. However, the option that came up was the one saying about the 'Disabled People's Employment and Training Schemes'. The A-Z was also really easy as I found what I was looking for. The Google result was also very easy as I also found what I was looking for. However, for the Home Navigation, I couldn't find this. I searched in the 'Health and Social Care' section and then went onto the 'Disabilities' section but I still couldn't find it so I looked in the 'Help for Adults' and eventually found it on the side underneath the 'Help for Adults' section.

The Employment Support Service (TESS) as a heading doesn't mention anything about disability, you need to read the small text for this. Google search was more difficult because lots of sponsored ads (mencap, skills force etc).

East Lothian Council - 2015-08-18
nothing on their own site, was linked to external job/apprenticeships site

East Sussex County Council - 2014-09-02
Results give links to Jobcentre Plus or PDF policy/minutes. Different results if searching for employment disability

Harrow Council - 2013-12-17
Presumably not a service provided by this council?

Liverpool City Council - 2015-01-14
I couldn't find any information on the Liverpool site for employment help for people with disabilities.

Manchester City Council - 2013-12-04
Could be a service manchester doesn't provide.

Southwark Council - 2014-02-10
Very large cookie warning - fail. Had to scan around Google top page to find a link that looked relevant "employment and equalities". Clicked on link to working for Southwark that led to awful third party site that b0rked. back button b0rked. Gave up. Southwark site painfully slow to respond. Still getting cookie warning. Go away! Internal search goes to "employment and equalities" page. 3rd party site worked this time, but has no relevant info. Gave up. A to Z turns up "Jobs - equal opportunites" page, but this ust contains ancient stats about diversity. Fail. Clciking on "Jobs" from home page leads to landing page. Nothing relevant to employment help for those with disabilities. Fail. A truly frustrating 10 minutes.

Surrey County Council - 2014-02-21
Page content is quite corporate and lots of focus on the EmployAbility service, who they are and why getting a job is important. Contact details a buried at the bottom of a fairly long page.

West Berkshire Council - 2014-02-06
I couldn't find a specific page for this information on the searches.

West Lindsey District Council - 2015-08-25
Could not find anything helpful at all, pages all slow to load anyway
